My 2.5 Manual Project version 2.0
« on: 26 August 2020, 18:07:15 »

Hi all,

Iíve just figured out how to host pictures so Iím going to try post them up, please bare with me  ;D ;D

I bought my Omega for the 2nd time on the 14th June this year, I previously owned it from Octoberí18 to March Ď19 when I was forced to sell under duress to buy my wife a new family wagon.

Here she is the day I picked her up.







And sheís very clean underneath.





The 1st thing I did after putting my plate on was change the wheels for the Saab Hammerheads Iíd bought for my old Vectra, I liked the way they looked but theyíre too narrow for my needs (7x17 et49 225/45/17 tyres)





Then I started gathering parts for the suspension overhaul I have planned & thought the wheels off the family wagon would look good on the Omega so bought some adapters.









Going to put 255/35/19ís on the rear to fill the arch properly.



Sheís booked in to the body shop to have a couple of bits of rust sorted & the front bumper/bonnet painted at the end of September, then Iíve got a black interior to fit & the suspension overhaul before I get onto the performance mods.

Thanks for looking  :y

They are 8.5 x 19 et 45 all round with 25mm spacers on the back & 22mm spacers on the front so effectively et 20 on the rear & et 23 on the front.

I had a couple of days free this week so decided to make a start on the Omega.
I fitted the Bilstein B4ís & Eibach Pro kit,
Swapped the beige trim & carpet for black & grey,
Fitted my new grille & gave it a wash.
My LSD arrived so itís progressing nicely 😎

Spacers all round?  ???

Surely someone must do a set of wheels with roughly the right offset ::)

Theyíre PCD adapters & theyíre the thinnest Iím willing to run. I already had the wheels so made them fit. Iíll get some that fit without adapters/spacers at some point  ;D
